We visited with family on Easter Sunday and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and good food. Everywhere was very clean and staff were friendly. Restaurant is in a very pleasant setting. Most of the adults had the Sunday roast. The portion sizes were large and if you don't have a huge appetite you might want to ask for a small portion... More

We ordered three thin crust pizzas for a quick family tea after a busy day. All in all, pretty good; tasty, piping hot and good value. Would use again

Visited the Vesuvio on mothers day and it was extremely busy. Typical for the restaurant, the service was first class, staff excellent, food to die for and an atmosphere which was vibrant and exciting. Starter of Minestrone was simply fantastic. A good bowlful which was filling without impacting on the following courses. We settled for the Sunday roast with 2... More

The food was so good that I tried waiting for my food to settle so I could try dessert. I ate all of my food and noticed that everyone around me ate all of their food too. You know the food is good when the staff only has empty plates to take away. When the food first arrived I thought,... More

The morning of my wedding day was made extra special and relaxed as I was able to greet family and friends here and have a coffee before getting ready. We also had lunch the day before with my parents. Ideal place for anything from a coffee to Sunday lunch. Plenty of parking and easy access via A6. Lovely staff. Good... More
